** ** The fight also calls back to Chuck's earlier comment that the Jaeger Program was brought down by incompetent pilots. Chuck made no attempts to hide the fact that he thought Raleigh was an inferior pilot and fighter. Raleigh proved him wrong.

* The AI whose voice is heard during parts of the facility scenes and announcing the status when the human characters are in the mechs to fight the Kaiju? It's GLaDOS from VideoGame/{{Portal}}! The director and his family are huge Valve fans, so Valve gave them permission to have Creator/EllenMcLain use her GLaDOS voice. Portal fans ''exploded''.

* You know that horn that always heralds Gipsy Danger's arrival? That loud ''BWOOOOM'' that sounds like HansZimmer's wet dream? [[MostWonderfulSound That's not part of the soundtrack.]] That's Gipsy's warning horn, and it has the double purpose of 1) [[BringIt distracting/intimidating Kaijus]], and 2) [[BigDamnHeroes announcing to any humans in the vicinity that a Jaeger is here to kick some monster ass.]]

* This movie's first CrowningMomentOfAwesome is the suit up. It manages to make a sequence more awesome than that in ''Film/IronMan''. And then the awesome just '''''keeps on escalating'''''.
** The whole suit up sequence and the step-by-step deployment of Gipsy Danger from the hangar bay, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome all accompanied by the main theme blasting in the background,]] '''FEELS SO DAMN AWESOME.'''
